Museum of Folk Architecture

Museum in Eastern Slovakia

Thirty traditional buildings have been transplanted from various villages and reassembled at this open-air museum, giving a flavour of three centuries of rural life in Slovakia. The most admirable buildings are a Unesco-listed 1706 Eastern Orthodox church from Zboj, and red-and-green church from Mikulášová. You’ll also see quaint belfries, timber and straw barns, and houses that resemble Christmas cookies.

If you don’t have time to visit any of the region’s fine wooden churches, this site is a convenient way to enjoy a dose of Slovakian folk architecture.
